"I Am What I Am"


I am what I am
I am my own special creation.
So come take a look,
Give me the hook or the ovation.
It's my world that I want to take a little pride in,
My world, and it's not a place I have to hide in.
Life's not worth a damn,
'Til you can say," I am what I am”

I am what I am,
I don't want praise, I don't want pity.
I bang my own drum,
Some think it's noise, I think it's pretty.
And so what, if I love each feather and each spangle,
Why not try to see things from a diff'rent angle?
Your life is a sham 'til you can shout out “I am what I am!”

I am what I am
And what I am needs no excuses.
I deal my own deck
sometimes the ace, sometimes the deuces.
There's one life, and there's no return and no deposit;
One life, so it's time to open up your closet.
Life’s not worth a damn 'til you can say,
"I am what I am!"
"I am what I am!"

[Instrumental]

I am what I am
And what I am needs no excuses.
I deal my own deck
sometimes the ace, sometimes the deuces.
There's one life, and there's no return and no deposit;
One life, so it's time to open up your closet.
Life’s not worth a damn 'til you can shout out,
"I am what I am!"
